[Subclipse-users] why is there no build path property in svn projects?

the issue i need help with happens in 2 different setups:

subclipse 1.4.6 with eclipse europa (version: 3.3.1.1 Build id: M20071023-1652), findbugs plugin 1.3.7.20081123;

and subclipse 1.4.7 with eclipse ganymede (version: 3.4.1 Build id: M20080911-1700); findbugs plugin 1.3.8.20090111.

certain plugins fail to work, but they only fail in projects that are created by importing an svn repository.

i created a new eclipse project by importing an svn repository. for some reason, with svn-imported projects, there is no java build path property where i usually expect to see it ("Project -> Properties"). the absence of the java build path property seems to render certain plugins useless; ones that seem to need to be told where the output directory is located. in particular, the jdepend plugin works for every other project that i created the usual way (that is, "File -> New -> Project"). when i try to use jdepend on the projects that i create by importing an svn respository, nothing happens when i launch the jdepend plugin, because jdepend can't find the class output directory.

another plugin that fails only in the svn-imported project, is the findbugs plugin. with projects that i create the usual way, when i right-click on the project in the package explorer or project explorer, there is a findbugs menu item in the context menu. however, with projects created from a svn import, there isn't a findbugs menu item in the context menus of package explorer and project explorer, like there should be.

so, my questions are:

   1. please, can anybody tell me what i need to do to have a java build path property added to svn-imported projects?
        
   2. please, can anybody suggest what might be causing the findbugs plugin menu item to fail to appear in the context menu, but only in svn-imported projects?
        
i know these might be issues i should probably take up with the respective plugin developers (and i will). i just thought i'd cover all the bases.

thanks in advance for your help.
